Established in 2003, Luggage Free has grown from a wild thought to the world leader in luggage shipping.
Luggage Free is made up of a dedicated team who never expected to know so much about luggage shipping or customs laws! Based in New York City, but with roots around the world, the team is a collection of professionals with a wide range of backgrounds, passions, dreams and skills. We work together – often late into the night or way too early in the morning – to make sure that your travel experience is as enjoyable as possible.

I came from Russia about 17 years ago and have been enjoying my time in New York. In my spare time I enjoy art and music and I spend most of my weekends going out in the city, sightseeing and visiting new places in the Big Apple. I love to travel and have gotten the opportunity to discover places in the world I didn’t know existed. One of my best memories is snorkeling Cozumel followed by eating oyster on the beach with a cold beer! I continue adding places I would love to visit one day. My goal in life is to enjoy and experience it the best I can, so at the end I can say I’ve done it all!
I hail from the great state of New Jersey, the Southern end where we have no accents!
One of my favorite memories is traveling to the city of Choluteca in Southern Honduras where my wife was born. The people are poor in money but rich in life.
When I am not cracking the whip at Luggage Free you’ll find me hanging out with family and friends, shooting the breeze, laughing and enjoying an adult beverage.
My 10 years with Luggage Free have afforded me the great opportunities of traveling to Australia, United Kingdom, Costa Rica, St Lucia and various domestic locations for business purposes.
When traveling on my own dime I have visited Mexico, Panama, Honduras, Puerto Rico and over 30 US states. I absolutely love staying in locations that are not exactly “touristy” areas.
When in Puerto Rico my children picked their own fruit right off the trees for breakfast, in Panama we were guests on a privately owned island where no motorized vehicles were permitted and they fished for their own dinner, and in Honduras we made our own tortillas from scratch then we prepared our meals on make shift stoves made out of stone located outside.
My dream vacation is to visit Ireland where I’ll drive through small towns surrounded by rolling green hills, visiting every castle I can and drinking Guinness beer!
